The Gulick Homestead in The Dalles, Oregon. A Scottish settler married a Wasco Nation woman named Harriet and constructed a homestead on the banks of the Columbia River in the late 1800’s. A very few of the buildings barely stand today.
“I am bound to my vague memory of you…Your caresses enfold me, like climbing vines on melancholy walls. I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to glimpse you in every window. Because of you, the heady perfumes of Summer pain me; because of you, I again seek out the signs that precipitate desires…” Pablo Neruda
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
